Fountain of Lifeby Renée H. Berry
The Truths of New Covenant living are basic to all. However, experiencing them intimately as God makes us and molds us into the image of Jesus Christ is very individualistic. As a counselor, teacher and trainer of the New Covenant Truths of Grace and Christ as Life, I am frequently asked two questions: How do I walk this out? and What does this look like? Even though the walking out is each individual’s personal journey, there are certain aspects that are true for all of us. This adventure resembles taking a well-planned cruise with 50 people. The trip is universally the same for all in terms of miles traveled and scenery viewed. Personal experiences, however, will be different for all 50 guests. Hopefully, this blog will enlighten the steps to the journey of New Covenant living and knowing Christ as Life. Every blog will offer an invitation to Invite Him In because after all, Jesus is the Fountain of Life.
For with You is the fountain of life…
Psalm 36:9 (AMP)
GOD, WHAT IS YOUR OPINION OF ME?
God, what is your opinion of me? That question, when sought and the answer believed, is life-changing. The New Covenant is filled with identity statements for the believer, beginning with “Saint.” For believers, who have not been taught that we had a nature change...
DO WE REALLY HEAR GOD’S VOICE?
I have had the honor of walking with many through our Discipleship Counseling process. Many doubt they hear the voice of God. I assure people they do hear the voice of God. How do I know that? Scripture tells us so in John 10: John 10:4 (AMPC) “When he has brought...
NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS?
As a “doer”, I’m enamored with Jesus’ “to do” list! He simply wants us to believe and live from the heart certainly not our own strength. All expressions of the heart are from love, His love. It takes the pressure off of the “I have to do” mentality. I just get to...
Invite Him In: Jesus in Seasons of Adversity
In Invite Him In, Renée shares her testimony of the heart-wrenching diagnosis, treatment, and aftermath she faced. Walk with her as she piercingly describes her emotional war with the Truth of God’s Word based on her intimate relationship with Jesus.
Perhaps, you will relate to Renée's journey by agreeing it doesn't always feel as if God loves you, cares for you, or is on your side. There is a place for those feelings. They should catapult you into the lap of Jesus where He can reveal Truth to you.
Truth is the only thing that will set you free from emotional bondage. He desires to do that for you. Answer His call to Invite Him In!
I am Renée—a fancy French name for an ordinary country girl. I love family, fall leaves, football and a house full of my brothers and sisters in Christ so I can cook. Yes, I LOVE to cook! I also like to write about all of the above as I totally depend on Christ as my LIFE. At age 12, I came to the realization that I loved the things of the Lord, but I did not have a personal, loving, saving relationship with Jesus. I had been raised in the church by a Christian family but I did not know Jesus just for me. I continued a life as a church-goer as I left my home of origin and married and established a home of my own. I realize now I accepted Christ as my Savior thinking I needed to do something for Him because in some way I was unacceptable. For years, I stepped up the plan to take care of that deficit. Take it from me, that did not work. As a trained musician, I not only worked in the church all of my adult life, but I landed a position as a Music Director for a Christian school. Sadly, I became more and more depressed. What in the world was lacking? I was “doing” all I could. Suddenly and tragically, my husband died when I was 48. We were at a pinnacle stage in our lives. We had raised two incredible children who were months away from being on their own. I resigned my music jobs and began to search for what would “fulfill” me. I looked for a...
